Welcome! My name is Mrs. Macher, and I am so excited to be teaching Grade 4 Mathematics and Social Studies at Bradford Woods Elementary School. Although I am beginning my 13th year as a classroom teacher, this year will be an adventure for me as I am new to the North Allegheny School District.

As I reflect on my career, I am very grateful for the impactful teaching and learning experiences I have had during my education as well as from the incredible educators I have taught with over the years. I am equally thankful of the amazing group of students I have had the privilege to teach. Looking forward, I am eager to continue my journey in education with the students, families, teachers, and administrators in the North Allegheny School District.

One of my goals for the 2019-2020 school year is to continue to engage students in activities where students are asked to think critically, formulate their own questions, and develop creative strategies to solve problems. I am a strong believer in the growth mindset, and I intentionally work to build a classroom climate where students encounter challenges, engage in a productive struggle, and learn through their perseverance. My hope is to create a classroom environment where all students feel valued and all students collaborate in a learning community.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and to read about my background. I am so excited to meet the students and families of Bradford Woods Elementary and to learn more about all of my special new friends. Let's all buckle up... this is going to be an exciting new adventure!
